Hi all, hope this is the correct spot for posting this
I've recently installed Vista on my computer and found that the Internet has
issues that I never had with XP (still have it on another partition).
the main problem is that in order to connect to a web site for the first
time (for each sessions), I have a 3 second delay... so for example,
starting up IE or FireFox to connect to my homepage (google.ca), I see the
'connecting to google.ca' status for 3 seconds and THEN I see the page.
From there, navigating to any other site has the same issue.. and it's worst
if there are sites that have lots of different sources (gamespot.com,
To test this, I've tested the performance at http://performance.toast.net/
The first time I test it (the F-16 jets), I get 4.8 seconds, but the second
time it takes 1.8 seconds... if I then browse back to google.ca and go back
to toast.net and redo the test, I'm back to 4.8 for the first test and 1.8
for the subsequent tests (until I leave the site to another one then come
back to it).
Downloading speeds are great once they're started (same as XP) but this
navigation delay is very annoying to say the least...
I've tried to minimize the services/autostart programs to try to optimize my
setup, disabled IPv6 as well, same results.
Also tried to start with 0 startup apps, same results as well..
Anyone has any idea on how this can be fixed?
Thx in advance....
